Before the law caught up with them for fraud, the makers of Enzyte intermittently ran a short late-night TV infomercial. Enzyte claimed to be a "male enhancement" formula. Bob, the star of the infomercial and supposed satisfied user of Enzyte, was constantly shown with this goofy but confident shit-eating smile on his face. The music used for that commercial was very similar in mood to "Rotonova." Listening to guitarist Razl's hipper and more intricate song will make you smile just like Bob. The 1:20 tune is part bossa nova, part blues, part traditional jazz organ trio and all fun. On the album it acts as a perfect transition to the next tune. You should check out Razl's music when you have a chance, even if you feel you have no need for enhancement.
Disclaimer: "Rotonova" has not yet been tested by the FDA to determine its efficacy.
